The Region Cloud

Subject

Lubbock, Percy

Description

Bound in marbled boards with a note from the publisher included: "With the author's compliments." The note is pro forma, but the words "the author's" have been handwritten in pencil.

Lubbock's only novel, which Wharton privately criticized in a letter to Gailliard Lapsley, calling it "a strange product in the light of [Lubbock's] private affairs." Here, Wharton is referring to Lubbock's latent homosexuality (in spite of his being married), a situation which she saw likewise reflected in this novel. See Wharton's letter to Lapsley dated 30 October 1925, included in R.W.B. and Nancy Lewis' The Letters of Edith Wharton, p. 486-7.
